Effects of Climate Change in the Netherlands

Newsitem | 21-02-2006

Climate change and its effects are also observable in the Netherlands. To date the effects are still limited in magnitude. This might change in the coming decades. Present trends in, for example, sea level rise and land subsidence may accelerate, leading to serious problems in the second half of the 21st century, especially in the lower-lying regions.
